“Last year Daniel showed me his new tattoo and then I asked how he got to do something like that. After a few beers I said, ‘If you make it to the podium, I’ll take one’. I’m a man of mine. word.”
Ricciardo – he finished in the top three for the first time since he started driving for Renault in 2019 – already said on Sunday that the design will probably have a German touch, referring to the Nürburgring.
